About the Dog Health Handbook
While there is a tremendous amount of information on dog health on the Internet, it is very difficult to find well edited and complete information all in one place. It is also difficult to find a resource where you can ask a veterinarian questions on specific canine and puppy diseases, conditions and behavior problems. Our professional editors, writers, dog health professionals and veterinarians work hard to provide the latest information on each issue. Where possible we will provide information on both conventional and natural treatment approaches along with supporting scientific evidence. Our policy is to include all references so that readers can refer to the source material where available.
If you think your dog is having a medical emergency, call your Veterinarian immediately. The Dog Health Handbook does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, Veterinarians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on the Site. Reliance on any information provided by The Dog Health Handbook, Dog Health Handbook employees and others appearing on the Site at the invitation of Dog Health Handbook such as reader contributed content, or other visitors to the Site is solely at your own risk. Every dog is unique and deserves a specific diagnosis from a veterinarian. The purpose of this site is to help you have an informed conversation with your Veterinarian.
These are the leaders of the Dog Health Handbook team. Each brings a unique set of experiences and backgrounds to our Handbook. This truly is a labor of love and our small contribution to the wonderful world of pet ownership.
